Te Pou Talking Therapies Toolkit

Te Pou are pleased to announce that they have launched the first four tools from their Let’s get talking toolkit. These tools are designed to support primary and secondary services to deliver effective talking therapies, and help determine which therapies are best for their communities, as well as the skills and knowledge needed for practitioners.

The toolkit supports planning and delivery of talking therapies using a stepped care approach. We invite you to take a look at Te Pou's Let’s get talking: Introduction video which they developed to help people understand more about stepped care in relation to talking therapies.

You can read more about Let’s get talking and access the tools at www.tepou.co.nz/letsgettalking.
